In advance, the first track to surface from the album, which was released as a stand alone single on the 11th – Lights Down Low – fills the room with the warm glow of warmed valves as the keys and guitars blend in to a comforting marshmallow.

The Swedish electro-goth sextet The Exploding Boy will be releasing the LP Alarms! on the 18th of May.

The Exploding Boy - The Day

The Exploding Boy

When introduced in 2013 The Exploding Boy were a quartet, who still remain, with Richard on Bass and Mattias on bass adding to the lineup. Rather than adding volume or compression to the music over the years, time and tide have washed the output with more defined shadows and stretching architecture creating music of more gothic frame than previous tracks featured.

A couple of songs have been revealed from the album – the most recent being the third of the eleven The Day.

Alarms! – The Exploding Boy is available on iTunes.*

Firstborn – Naked & Exposed – Video

The Swedish indie-rock band Firstborn released the EP Naked & Exposed: Chapter I: Dividualism yesterday.

Firstborn - Naked & Exposed

Firstborn

The almost title track of the EP – Naked & Exposed which is the second of the five – is a natural extension and evolution to the sound of a band who first featured back in 2012.

Line-up changes with only the vocal and guitar of Marcus Carlzon and Joachim Ragnarsson respectively being part of the original quartet has seen the, sometimes quartet sometimes quintet, evolve from roots steeped in heavy-metal to their current fulcrum of a maturity of indie-rock without ever alienating the audience as the originating influences remain branded in to the essence of the songs.



Firstborn are currently on a six nation European tour, with another nine nights remaining, in support of the LP and if you are anywhere near, I recommend finding some time in your diary.
